9/11 A Story of Goodness, Hope and the Power of Teddy Bears, Teamwork and an Idea

#September11 #TheTeddyBearProject #OneIdeaMakesADifference

I got the call from my sister-in-law, “just turn on the TV.”

We had just moved to Florida from New York. David and I are born and raised in NYC kids. Our family tradition had been, since the time the children were born, to go to the World Trade Center, have breakfast on a Saturday morning and watch the photographers take wedding pictures, while we ate a croissant and coffee with the kids. Then we walked to Canal Street and did shopping. It was our family tradition.

Every year we would also go to Jimmy Curran, his wife Maryilyn’s house for their annual fireman’s celebration. Jimmy and Marilyn were friends of my family since I was a teen Jimmy had been the Captain of NYCFD Rescue One. And was also the president of the New York City Firefighters Burn Unit. He had become the trainer of every firefighter for a high-level risk recovery.

Every person should have their own song!

Creating a song that embodies who you are is life-giving.  What you say to yourself is so powerful you that you deserve your own song. One of the best investments I made was in creating and producing my song. It is my ring tone, it pumps me up in the morning and people love listening to it.

Here is how I use my song:

  1. As my ring tone. Yes it shouts to me who I am
  2. As my introduction music when I speak.  Pumps and me and others up. I also use it in my close. No copyright issues it is all mine.
  3. Share it with friends and fans who need to be pumped. Love inspiring people.

The first is my full song Pegine Power.

 

 

The second is the second stanza for you to sing to you. Pegine Power Song “It’s My Power” for You to Sing To YOU

Your Super Power Always Shows Up – Believe In You

From the moment you wake up you decide who you are and what you believe about yourself.  You live with that choice on a daily basis.  The way you feel about yourself is an indicator to you if those beliefs or thoughts are true or not. The way you feel when you are thinking those thoughts tell you if you are on the right course or not.

Feeling bad, wanting to cover your head, hiding or worrying about your future are all indicators that your thoughts are not in your highest best interest, that they are not what your inner self, your inner superpower thinks of you.

Inner Child or Inner Super Power

Pegine Super Power www.Pegine.com 904.280.8806

I hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW). I was trained about the concepts of inner child work and learned this inner child has to be cared for, nurtured, held tight and protected by you.  Therapists and doctors write about the inner child and how the traumas and hurts experienced by us as children created beliefs that hold us back from becoming mature adults.

Living Powerfully with Joy

Living with joy is a feeling that is hard to express, it is bliss, that wonderful feeling that everything just right. It is liberating and freeing and it is dependent on one question “What makes me happy?”  What makes you happy?

Be opitimistic. Joyous living comes from appreciating what you have, who you are and what you are creating for your highest, best self.

What really makes you happy?

  • I know people who love their work. They love it so much, we as onlookers say they are working too hard, but for them…they are in bliss.
  • I know people who adore their hobbies and feel a rush when they spend time on them. It fills a part of their soul that is magical.
  • I know people who can loll the day away on a beach and feel such serenity and joy, it is amazing.

Do you have a written code of conduct?

Pegine www.Pegine.com 904.280.8806 Leadership Speaker Business Speaker Diversity Speaker Women’s Leadership Speaker Motivational Speaker Jacksonville Speaker Florida Speaker

Do you have a written individual code of conduct? Does your organization have a clear, concise code that causes commitment?  Read the US military code of conduct. It is very clear, concise and causes commitment.  If you don’t have one, create one, don’t use big words, make yours very clear. 

Spend time reviewing your history, the words you have used and the unspoken expectations that you and your organization have.  Write them down and be very clear. 

********************************************************************

The Code of Conduct provides guidance for the behavior and actions of members of the Armed Forces of the United States. This guidance applies not only on the battlefield, but also in the event that the service member is captured and becomes a prisoner of war (POW).

The Code is delineated in six articles.

Article I:

I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.[3]

4 Changes Caused by Women In Leadership

Last night I was in a restaurant and noticed a group of women in the corner. The restaurant was empty and the voices of the women reached my table. They were talking about leadership, opportunities and women in leadership.

They were talking about their next steps, I was able to surmise that they worked for a large global corporation and were in senior leadership. As my ears grew and I strained to listen I heard the same things that I hear from my coaching clients, all who are in senior leadership.

Change has arrived

The sidebar meetings, the isolation tactics [ keep the femsaway] are accelerated. They just don’t get that they have to change, learn and be flexible to a new way. This is happening in corporate, government, and associations. Change has happens. Learn how to deal with power women.

The Gift of Knowing

I have had a long time of knowing. A long time of knowing but not necessarily believing this was my destiny. For a long time, I kept asking for my mission and my purpose. While I had many signals that directed me, I still was not sure.

My journey has been as glorious as a winding stream traveling long distances, curving, going back, and having many switchbacks. At times my stream was a rapid river of abundance and experiences, at other times it was a little trickle, still moving but by droplets. I know I was impatient, wondering and often not appreciating where I was and how I got there.

What I’ve learned is the stream will always be flowing until the day I die, only then, maybe I will have reached my destiny.
